Booklet explains the story of Disestablishment
1st January 2021 will mark the 150th anniversary of the Irish Church Act 1869, which ended the Church of Ireland’s established status and its union with the Church of England, taking effect.
A leaflet from APCK – available online here – outlines the story of Disestablishment and covers how the Church of Ireland became Anglican and Established, why Disestablishment happened when it did, what happened at Disestablishment, and how the Church prepared for self–government.
More information on the Church of Ireland’s National Programme of events to mark the 150th anniversary of Disestablishment can be found at www.ireland.anglican.org/d150
